NHTSA to Crash Test 85% of 2013 Models

Detroit News - September 12, 2012

The Nation­al High­way Traf­fic Safe­ty Admin­is­tra­tion said Wednes­day it will crash test 54 2013 mod­els as part of its revamped 5-star safe­ty rat­ings pro­gram.

The tests rep­re­sent 85 per­cent of the vol­ume of new vehi­cles sold.

NHTSA tests vehi­cles with the high­est sales vol­umes and com­pares them, using star rat­ings, to high­light which vehi­cles go above and beyond what is fed­er­al­ly required.
